Default Multiple GPUs?

While browsing around for upgrades from a 256MB 6200, I stumbled across this card.

http://www.circuitcity.com/rpsm/oid/...Detail.do#tabs

The section that says "Multiply and Conquer" sounds quite interesting but I'm a little confused as to what it means by "high-performance processor sharing".

Does this mean it works with other video cards or what?

It's just a CrossFire enabled card, that's all.

You want multiple GPU's?

Feast your eyes on this monster: XFX Geforce 7950GX2 featuring 2 GPU's!

SLI in a single video card!

The 7950 GX2 is okay. A waste of money if you ask me. Becides, it's not really the fastest single card solution. It's the fastest dual-PCB in one package solution. Technically it's two 7900 GTX's mounted together and linked with a special PCI-E bus.

So a crossfire board allows multiple Crossfire Graphics Cards to work together basically?

The dual GPU GX2 is a good card as it leads the way among all video cards when performing at 1920x1200 resolution regardless of dual GPU or single, but the ATI X1900XTX video card is faster overall. It even outperforms the Geforce 7950 GX2 in most tests.
